Record 65 puts Binaghi on top in Talma
Alberto Binaghi dug deep into his wealth of experience to card a course record seven under par 65 and lead at the halfway mark of the Talma Finnish Challenge. The 36 year old Italian defied the blustery conditions and showed how the Talma course should be played to open a two-stroke advantage over four players, Swedes Mårten Olander and Per Larsson, Nicolas Joakimides from France and England’s Gary Clark.
Four-way tie at the top in Finland
Four players from different nationalities shared the lead after the first round of the Talma Finnish Challenge near Helsinki. Ian Hutchings from South Africa, England’s Ben Mason, Frenchman Nicolas Joakimides, and Mårten Olander from Sweden all carded four under par 68.
Challenge Tour Heads North

Record 65 steers Eriksson to victory
Sweden's Klas Eriksson completed his first victory in eight years when he won the Talma Finnish Challenge near Helsinki. And the 30 year old did it in style, equalling the course record of 65 for a 16 under par tally of 272, finishing four strokes clear of Londoner Gary Clark, and five ahead of Alberto Binaghi from Italy and Dutchman Neils Kraaij.
